Slain NBA Player Lorenzen Wright’s Widow Was Arrested In Connection With His 2010 Murder

An arrest was made in the 2010 murder of former journeyman big man Lorenzen Wright earlier this month. Wright was shot and killed in his hometown of Memphis, and prior to the Dec. 5 arrest of a man named Billy Turner, it seemed like the investigation had gone cold.

But Turner’s arrest indicated that authorities in Memphis had made some headway in their search for justice. And as it turns out, the police were not done making arrests in relation to the case, as word came down on Saturday that Wright’s ex-wife, Sherra, was arrested and charged with a myriad of crimes.


Fox 13 in Memphis reported that Sherra Wright was arrested in California.

Jail records show she was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside at 9:28 p.m. Pacific time.MPD said Sherra Wright-Robinson has been indicted and arrested for conspiracy, criminal attempted first degree and first degree murder in the death of Lorenzen Wright.


Wright was questioned about her involvement by Sports Illustrated in 2015 as part of a collaborative effort by the magazine and Fox Sports 1. Here’s what she had to say:
Wright was drafted in 1996 by the Los Angeles Clippers. He spent more than a decade bouncing around the NBA, suiting up for the Clippers, Atlanta Hawks, Memphis Grizzlies, Sacramento Kings, and Cleveland Cavaliers.

New Issue of ‘Batman’ Will Explore His Catholic Upbringing & Why He’s Not a Christian Anymore

The recent run of Batman comics by red-hot comic book writer Tom King has really leaned into Batman’s human side, exploring his loneliness, mental health and doomed romantic life more profoundly than any in recent memory. And now, it appears, the series is going to tackle yet another of the Dark Knight’s all-too-human experiences: lost faith.In a preview of an upcoming issue illustrated by Lee Weeks and released to Inverse, Bruce Wayne reveals that his father raised him as a Christian. Wayne’s father, as you may be aware, is no longer in the picture, and when he died, he took Bruce’s fledgling faith with him. No word on whether or not Bruce is going to rediscover his faith as part of this story, but he’s not in a great place, generally.
